Home again,

Home again,

...................................... nearly finished an account of my travels and the ................journal vanishes.

Wonderful three days in West Cork with great weather until this morning when all hell broke loose and a gale hit the Mizen area  where we were staying. Incredible. Not great driving conditions!!

Anyway first place we went was the Ewe sculptor garden an amazing place and so worth a visit. Not a garden per se but so fascinating . Built on a wooded hillside around a marvellos waterfall. Sculptures everywhere , a lot of recycled material and food for thought ! Leaving it is like departing from another World. Do look at the website as the pictures there give an idea of this creation. Very steep and uneven steps at places but don't miss it if you are in the area.

Then Called to Phemie Rose who has a wonderful garden with a dedicated exotic area and Hostas so big they are like trees.  She is a fab seed grower and has unusual plants many S. African which she grows from seed. Bought some plants there , I know some of you have visited here.

Then my dear friend Mary Walsh with the wonderful garden metres from the sea. As ever she had an unusual plant for me Buddleia salviiflora .  The picture is of two of the giant Agaves in the garden , her Watsonias were wonderful  and Cannas and Ginger survive in abundance.

So back home but it was so wet there was no way of touring my place to admire the weeds!!

This is a lovely shade of blue with flowers on tall stems. Apparently it is scented but was too far down for me to bend and sniff and the grass is too wet to kneel on but I will test it later in the week.!

It is hard to beat this old fashioned plant for colour, I do love it. These survived the Winter and though some are a bit straggly at the base the flowers glow.
